  1. Can anyone help me find a high output alternator for a 2015 Nissan Sentra SV 1.8L? I can't seem to find one online anywhere. I currently have an Ignite r3000 amp and and an american bass xd 15 running at roughly 1000 watts at 1ohm. I also have an alpine amp thats 55x4 for my highs which are memphis. My stock alternator is 110amp and I can't seem to find anything higher! Please help
  2. Hi! I'm rebuilding my Punto for next year events. I bought it 5 years ago so let's start from there: First system including Ultimate T2 12" subwoofer, Twister TW1000 "1000W" amplifier and Hertz low end 6,5" coaxials and JVC head unit. Then there was Pioneer DEH-P5100UB head unit, better Hertz 6,5" coaxials with Focus Acoustics Formula FX-4150 amplifier, SPL Dynamics XTR-380D2S 15" subwoofer, Focus Acoustics Formula FX-1500D 1500W amplifier and Optima 55Ah battery. In the next step I upgraded speakers to 6,5" Hertz Energy ESK163L.4 3-way component system, made bigger and better subwoofer box, added 20Ah BSB battery and some tuning parts. Next I changed Kenwood KDC-BT92SD head unit, added another set of 6,5" Hertz Energy ESK163L.4 3-way component system speakers to rear, changed FX-4150 amplifier to SPL Dynamics ICE-150.4 and 15" XTR subwoofer to Focus Acoustics Black MK5 15D2 15". Then I upgraded the whole system and started to work with the interior. New system: Optima YELLOW TOP 55Ah and 38Ah batteries Focus Acoustics FX-2500D 2500W amplifier Focus Acoustics Black MK5 15D2 15" subwoofers x2 SPL Dynamics ICE-150.4 amplifiers x2 Hertz ESK163L.4 component speaker systems x2 SPL Dynamics SPL-HD25T Horn Loaded Compressor Tweeters x2 Match PP72W-D subwoofers as midbasses at front x4 To be continued in new post
  3. First time posting in this thread. Looking for a reliable hard pounding card audio system for around $1k. It is for a chevy Tahoe. So far I am considering getting a pair of Sundown Audio 12" 750W Dual 4-Ohm with the sundown audio 1500.1 or going with the skar audio 2000.1 monoblock (200$ cheaper). Will custom build the box accordingly and have a solid aftermarket head unit. Does this sound like a good set up for someone looking to get some extra bass from using a pair of L7s in the past?
  4. Hello everyone, I am planning on building my own single 12 SEALED box for my sub. The sub recommendations for the box volume is 1.37 cubic feet. I'm new to this stuff so can anyone just give me measurements of wood i need so i can go cut it and put it together? I'm going to use 3/4 MDF wood. Just give me the height X width of each side i need. please and thank you very much.
  5. This is the hardest i've ever seen these things move so far. watch in fullscreen 1080p for best quality. enjoy
  6. Ok so i wanna install my car audio in my garage as garageaudio i have speakers,subs,amp,capacitor,headunit. What else do i need? Links would be helpful...
  7. I got a pair of Massive Audio DC 10's and i was wondering if anyone could help me with a box design. I want a box good for SPL as well as a decent daily box. Preferably Tuned in the lower to mid 30's or higher if i can still play into the 20's. I mainly listen to decaf and big pimpin. Thanx.
  8. Well, I'm a poor college student.. And I had a few vector designs I made a while back.. Decided I would put some on some shirts and see what happens. And for the accord lovers: I'd link to the site and shirts, but I'm scared that would cause this to get deleted.. So I guess I'm asking you guys if you'd be interested in them at $12.40 each? I'll probably be making more soon, and I'm open to creating shirts for teams, etc.
  9. Does anyone know how i can get a hold of a pair of dual 1 ohm or dual 4 ohm massive audio dc 10 recones? I don't care if they are psi or massive recones as long as they fit. Thanx.

  11. I know DC amps do rated power but are they underrated like some other brands out there? if so by how much if anyone knows. thanks!
  12. I am slowly counting down the days in anticipation for the day when the dc level 3 15s arrive at my doorstep. I will post a video when they arrive to show how much I support the whole dc team
  13. please read the for sale section rules.
  14. does anyone know when a new version of the sundown e-12s are coming out or the sa-12 looking to get some but would wait if a new version is coming soon thanks guys
  15. I'm very impressed with the quality of the Skar VVX series. I definitely haven't been disappointed. For only two 12s in a Full size SUV there is decent flex and air movement. I have them on just a HiFonics Hfi1000.1 D So they are not getting even the 600RMS each they are recommended. Plus If I'm careful I could probably put 750 to 1000 watts on each sub and they would take it easily. These subs can definitely take a beating and they love hitting nasty lows. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzT9-IlwbhY

  19. Ok, I'm looking into buying either a XS D2700 or an XS D3100 battery.... Issue is that I am only allowed one battery in the class that I am running. I can barely fit the D2700 in the stock battery location, and the D3100 is way to big to fit. Question is: Should I just deal with the D2700 and keep it in the Stock location, or go with the bigger D3100 and just put a distrobution block under the hood and run the battery in the trunk? Thanks guys
  20. What up guys I need some help on gettin my system started. Even though Im pretty good with home stereos and surround sounds im fairly new on car audio. I want to start a build in my 1974 Plymouth Duster. Since im just gettin started and i dont have too much money i was thinkin I should start off buying everthing from walmart. I was looking at some Pioneer subs there because in my opinion they look better than the Xplods. Its Pioneers TS-W304r 12" sub. I just want to know if its a good starter sub, or if i should get the Xplods. I have a rear fold down seat so i wanted to have two subs faced towards the front of the car with the box sealed off from the truck, i heard on one of Steves videos that that would sound best and produce virtually no trunk rattle. I really dont know where im goin with this i just need some advice on getting everything going. so any help would be appreciated.
  21. Hey guys! So I'm new to the whole SMD forums as well as car audio in general. For years I've been watching bass videos and always aspired to get my first setup and finally accomplished this goal. Today I worked for almost 12 hours installing my first setup which consists of one 12" Kicker L7 and an RE Audio XT2000 amp. I wired everything but was disappointed to see the sub was barley even hitting. Even when I cranked the volume the sub was barley moving and you could only tell it was by touching it. Also, while I was filming the "i need help" video, for whatever reason the sub wasn't even playing at all. I need help! What could be going wrong? I made sure everything was properly connected, could it be a setting on my aftermarket headunit? Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks guys :tup: Video I just took a new video this morning, but this is the one from last night (figured out the reason it wasnt even playing was because i had the switch on slave) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQ52kCBQ-08&list=UUzfYGV3CBu7X7ooQrEkbRgA&index=1&feature=plcp http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ih0vPOJEXuM&list=UUzfYGV3CBu7X7ooQrEkbRgA&index=1&feature=plcp
